, let me get to you react to what mark o'mara, the defense attorney for george zimmerman posted a little while ago, while juror b-29 is a model juror. "people may disagree with self-defense laws but a juror's job is not to decide what a law should be, her job is to apply the facts presented at trial to the laws they are instructed about. this is the eence of what we seek in a juror, the at to use one as common sense, apply the law to the facts, agree not to be swayed by sympathy or emotion, no matter how loudly it's argued by the prosecutors and decide a lawful and fair verdict." do you agree that juror b-29 was a, quote, model juror? >> well, i don't know if she was a model juror or not. i certainly think that she approached the process in good faith. i don't think there's any reason to doubt that she did that. but i think jeffrey makes a good point. what is really clear when we hear this juror speak is that she really misunderstood the law. she did not appropriately apply the law to the facts because she didn't understand it. and the reason why she didn't understand it could be because

, and he acts in self-defense, that's incredible bad luck he found himself in that situation twice. but we'll sleep soundly. >> you would sleep soundly if you did it again? >> if he's acting legally in self-defense again, absolutely. >> and at what point does he have to take responsibility for pursuing, some would sigh stalking unarmed teenagers who are walking home? >> again, two different levels of government review have found no fault with mr. zimmerman's actions. >> i'm asking you if you do. if you think at any point he has any responsibility for his own actions? in other words, if you're going to arm this guy again, give him a gun that he's recently used to shoot an unarmed teenager. if you're going to arm him again, and that's what you've actively done. you've raised $12,000 to arm him with guns, ammunitions, security and so on, that's fine. what if he does it again? >> well, i mean, we can go through all the hypotheticals you'd like to go through, what it comes down to is that he's gone through a government review again in the second hypothetical situation that you're raising, then

his head into the concrete, and he acts in self-defense, that's incredible bad luck he found himself in that situation twice, but we'll sleep soundly. >> i mean, he will sleep very soundly but when i asked him have you thought about providing help to trayvon martin's family so they can defend themselves, he didn't really have an answer for me. >> i watched the interview last night, and having been a homicide prosecutor here in new york, i can tell you i've sat across from and interviewed people who were store owners, as well as police officers who had to use their firearm and take a life, and if it's in self-defense and they were not -- they were found not to be liable for that death, it was not a murder, it was a killing, as in this situation here, i -- i can tell you for certain those people were affected in ways that stayed with them forever. a police officer who takes the life of a young teenage boy, the first thing he would want to do is not grab a gun. that's not the kind of person that goes back to the core values i was talking about. a real law enforcement officer, somebody t
could be together. newman was charged with the murder and part of his defense centered on the claim that andrea snyderman was actively involved in planning the whole thing. she testified at newman's trial explaining why she was in florida at the time of the murder and denying any role. >> we were married in florida at a synagogue in florida. i was down there with my family. whose boss kills swunl's husband? i don't care if there were no affair. there was no affair. who kills someone else's husband? >> newman was convicted and sure enough, six months later, andrea snyderman was charged in connection with the murder of her husband. jury selection is underway right now, but in a surprise move, the prosecutors asking the judge to drop the most serious murder charge. essentially admitting they don't have the evidence to back it up. instead, she now faces a bunch of lesser charges, including lying to police and lying while on that witness stand. rusty snyderman's family very upset the murder charge was dropped since they say all along, they've been sure she played some kind of a role. mea

not require intent. and she never addresses self-defense. that was such a focal point in the case, not only for the defense, also for the prosecution. they had the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt there was not self-defense. >> lisa, what do you think? >> i think there's no question that george zimmerman shot trayvon martin intention ally. he according to his own statements pulled out the gun and shot the gun intentionally. it's so disturbing to hear a juror speak after the fact that perhaps she should have held out when she had every opportunity in the jury room to voice how she felt and stand her ground and ultimately she chose not to. >> she's chose not to. mash, go ahead. when you heard this woman explain her rational, what did you think? >> the parties that i'm extracting from it i want to compliment about. trials are not moral try b-- tribunals in the united states. it happens every day in american jurisprudence. people may be everything from child molesters to murderers and robbers and everything in between but you have to apply the fact, you have to apply the evidence to th

whitey bulger. the defense will open its case on monday. jim armstrong has the story. >> reporter: the government ended its case on two powerful witnesses, one, what was known as massive money laundering and the other an irs agent who arrested him. he co--owned a bank account with his brother that was used to collect on big south boston debt long after whitey went on the run. after that jurors got to see everything pulled out of bulger's apartment turned hideout in santa monica california. more than $822,000 in cash hidden in walls alongside 30 pistols, rifles and other weapons. the witness testified he screamed and swore when arrested but eventually calmed down and told katherine to say, yes and, they're going get it. he used his real name joking quote, this is the first time i've signed this name in a long time. when agent gary hola asked if he would have ever used this arsenal to engage in a shoot-out with police, he said no because a stray bullet might hit someone. it was a powerful day of testimony and images but some are not confident of a conviction
the enemy, he faces life in prison. the defense never denied manning leaked government secrets, rather his motivation was naive. wanted to expose government lies and wanted to be famous. colonel denise lind overseeing the trial known as court-martial is determining the outcome, not a jury, whether the prosecution met the high legal standard of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that manning act with general evil intent. >> i think it is a hard case to make unless you have a confession from the person that's charged with the crime in which they indicate that there are specific reasons for do what they did was to harm the united states, and i don't think they have that in this case. >> the verdict will be read in court tomorrow afternoon, the culmination of nearly two months of testimony and evidence, bret. >> thank you. >>> one of america's greatest warriors has died. bud day was shot down during the vietnam war, endured years of captivity and abuse, without revealing sensitive information. one of his fellow prisoners and cell mate for years, arizona senator john mccain spoke of his friend o
as a whistleblower. the prosecution cited a conviction from the civil war days. the defense denied that bradley manning aided the enemy. arguing there's no evidence at all that he knew al qaeda militants ever even looked at wikileaks, and today it appears the judge agreed. bradley manning shows very little emotion, might have smiled at the end. catherine herridge is live. tell us more how this plate out in court. >> the military courthouse is about three-quarters of a mile from where i'm standing right now, and just before 1:00 eastern, about 12 minutes before that hour, private first class gradley mapping entered the courtroom and at that time, at least initially, he appeared fairly relaxed but as the clock tick down he became understandably tense. when verdict was read, manning stood up, faced the judge directly with his arms like stove pipes at his side. showed virtually no emotion, and two dozen of his supporters were in the courtroom as public spectators, and they were silent. afterwards, those speck taters connected with the defense attorneys and there was some applause, but virtually tha
, they are not necessary. the law of self-defense worked well for years and years an years. and i think there is a determination, and i was proud that both the attorney general and the president, as well as many others, have commented -- john mccain's words that these laws should be reviewed -- were also welcome, that there is a growing consensus that these laws are inconsistent with safe communities. our own poll shows race relations are, 50% of whites think race relations are fairly or very good, but only 38% of african-americans. you think that that's the impact of the verdict, partly? >> there's no doubt that the verdict has had an impact. it's, to some extent, affected people's confidence in the criminal justice system. i think that we've seen conflict and a lot of of tough language being played out indeed in the media. i remain optimistic and hopeful that reasonable minds, that people who are ready to understand that while we've come a great distance when it comes to race and race relations in this nation, in the 21st century there is a lot of unfinished work and that we've got to
. texas would be gone. they'd get no more highway money. there would be no more shared national defense. it would just be texas on its own. the land where nobody messes with the fact that poor people can't afford health insurance. that was almost four years ago exactly. >> the opposition to reforming health care isn't the most cogent thing in the world thus far. the gop health care solutions group in congress, you will recall, admitted this week they think it's best if they don't actually offer any health care solutions. they'd rather just keep saying no to whatever it is the democrats are offering no matter what it is. but in this rollicking substance-free festival of incoherence, there is one man who is determined to be the most incoherent of all. little known outside his home state for anything other than having beautiful hair and for threatening to secede from the union back in april, texas governor rick perry is now threatening that texas will also secede from health care. i told you it was incoherent. speaking with a conservative talk show host yesterday on wbap in arlington, texa
the prosecution failed and the defense succeeded? >> i've said many times the prosecution bungled this case and failed to connect the jury instructions the law she is talking about with the evidence. in my opinion, the evidence was there. but the prosecution essentially asked questions in closing argument having a arguing reasonable doubt like the defense. of course this woman and probably many other jurors as well who is so conflicted and knows in her heart that something is wrong here that an injustice was done but that she was sworn to follow the law as it was given her. they were given 27 pages of confusing jury instructions. they had a prosecutor who didn't connect the dots and didn't give them the evidence to connect it to the jury instructions the way prosecutors do in every other murder case in america every day so this is how it came out. now not only is the martin family, of course, devastated, we heard that on yet another very gracious statement from sybrina fulton, but now the jurors are left feeling guilty and feeling terrible about the outcome of this case. >> now, goldie, thi
good defense to a failure to supervise case. then the feds come in on the other side they do a manuever now if steven cohen provide evidence and testimony in his defense in the sec case in washington, that will be used against him in the federal prosecution in new york. sac is surrounded right now and i don't think steven cohen is completely out of the woods in terms of an indictment. i think he has a problem. david: harvey, we may have to cut our conversation short. your cell phone is going in and out. if you can hear us we'll go on. but has there ever been a case. the sec is charging steve cohen and we may have criminal indictments to this charge, wasn't as conscious, not accusing him of insider trading but saying he should have been aware his traders were doing insider trading. has that kind of charge ever stuck? >> yes, they have brought similar types of cases but their case against cohen as i read it is much stronger than, than that. what they have said was, he was in the middle of e-mail chains that alerted them to the problematic nature of trading and i also think when you look a

on amendments to a nearly $600 billion defense bill that would block the nsa from gathering phone records of millions of americans. tara mergener is in washington with more on that. good morning, tara. >> good morning, anne-marie. white house press secretary jay carney released a statement late last night saying that while the president is open to a discussion of domestic surveillance tactics, the house amendment stripped the nsa of one of its most important counterterrorism tools. me meanwhile it could also have an impact on how the u.s. gets involved in the conflict in syria. general chief alexander made an emergency visit to capitol hill on tuesday. he asked lawmakers from both parties to oppose an amendment to a defense bill that would stop his agency from collecting phone records from millions of americans. the legislation is one of the first actions by congress against the nsa since former contractor edward snowden leaked details of the agency's domestic spying programs last month. michigan republican congressman justin amosh introduced the amendment and believes it has a good chanc
amash, late today offered an amendment to a defense spending bill that would end the n.s.a.'s blanket collection of domestic phone data. amash's plan would allow the n.s.a. to continue collecting limited u.s. phone data but only of individuals targeted in counter- terrorism investigations. administration officials are fighting any restrictions. >> i think it's important to-- for the defense of our country. >> reporter: n.s.a. chief keith alexander has led the campaign to preserve the n.s.a.'s powers. intelligence committee leaders from both parties agree it's crucial to keep collect so- called metadata, information detailing what numbers are dialed and how long the calls last. but a privacy-minded coalition of liberals and conservatives want the government to back off. jason chaipens is a republican from utah. >> if there's cause, great, let's go ahead and track you. but if there's not cause, if you're an american going about your own business, you should not be tracked by your federal government. >> reporter: late today the amendment was defeated. meaning the n.s.a. data collection p
in on the man in that courtroom, versus the law. >> this is what the defense feared, the possibility that some of these jurors might decide this case based on emotion and not based on the law. even she said, she said she still thinks he did the right thing, because she followed the law, if she followed her heart, she would have hung that jury. >> she even said she would give them the hung jury, i fought to the end. so there was debate. >> there was debate. they asked for the manslaughter charge read back. if there had been one or two more maddies back there, this could have been a hung jury. >> dan, thank you. much more of robin's interview with that juror tonight on "nightline" and tomorrow morning robin on "good morning america," weighing in on that torn juror, struggling with the heart break, but standing by the verdict. the exclusive on "good morning america." >>> in the meantime, also breaking tonight, the frightening landing, the southwest jet at a new york airport. the unsettling images from inside the plane. tonight we've just learned, it wasn't the landing gear that failed. it was tha
. >>> the defense delivers closing arguments in the court marshal of bradley manning. the prosecution said he gathered information in iraq with the goal of sending it to wikileaks. they called him a traitor, not a whistleblower. >>> finally a touching duet. ♪ don't need the money, money, money ♪ ♪ we just want to make the world ♪ >> that is university of memphis quarterback jacob carom sharing a tune with an 11-year-old cancer patient. the school's star quarterback his regular visitor with the kids at the hospital, this little girl has an aggressive form of leukemia and they did some ten songs together. i'm getting goosebumps. >> ten songs? >> ten sokngs. >> powerful medicine. >> yes, sure is. >> takes very little to do that, right? >> good stuff. >> thanks, michaela. >>> time now for our political gut check all the stories you need to know coming out of washington and around the country. first up president obama this week selling what the administration calls his new economic message but is it more of the same? is it working? is it resonating? that's where cnn's chief national corres
and disadvantaged. and it's hoped such a message may prove more attractive than the defensiveness that prevailed in the wake of repeated vatican scandals, both financial and sexual. in rio, we found new yorker ariana drauch who credited the pope with re-energizing the faithful. >> i think the pope has a great head on his shoulders and he definitely -- he knows what he's talking about. >> reporter: dean reynolds de janeiro, cbs news. >>> time now for headlines. for that to happen the stock would have to trip until value. >> "the washington post" says the cia is winding down operations in afghanistan. the spy agency plans to cut the number of its clandestine bases in afghanistan in half. >> the "los angeles times" look at apple third quarter earnings. the company beat predictions. also set a record for the number of iphones sold. the news sent shares higher in after hours trading. >> "the boston globe" said a grand jury is hearing emd on whether aaron hernandez should be charged in the shooting death of two men in 2012. he is due in court today for the murder of another man
at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should look at cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollar and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents for every dollar. maybe senator paul could deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected. >> are you going to take his advice, senator? >> this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. you know, we have two military bases in kentucky and is governor christie recommending we shut down our military bases? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do, shut down military bases in kentucky? in order to have enough money for national defense, you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. and governor christie and others have been part of this gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme all this money. we could have done the relief for sandy in a responsible way. i propose we do
in a minute. here's my general question. should the united states be primarily concerned with its own defense? do we have to be careful we don't get invaded and two days later say somebody says if we'd only done one thing because we're concerned about civil liberties. >> if you come out what looks to be an argument and you didn't use that power, you're dead politically in this country if you get attacked. >> chris, i worked 20 feet from the oval office for years and i saw the president the national security team grapple with a very real threat of attack. and the tools that are there that the nsa provided were important in thwarting some of those attacks. if we hadn't done it, then we would indeed have had more catastrophic kinds of attacks. i think people would have been outraged about it we have to be careful how we do that, and what the president suggested is that's why we have to have the involvement of all three branches of government. the answer is not to scrap the intelligence gathering that has demonstrably helped keep the american people safer. >> i don't like this. >> trisha: i'm not
reputed mob boss whitey bulger, the next phase will come with the defense taking over and considering putting bulger himself on the witness stand. now, that would be interesting. and this is, too, because who better to talk about the latest developments here none other than that john redshea, welcome back, sir, how you doing? >> thank you, don. i'm doing very well. thanks so much for having me this evening. >> great. red is a former associate of whitey bulger and the author of "rat bastards", john, thank you for coming here. the prosecution rested its case after 30 days, which witness will be the most memorable to the journey, you think? >> i'm going to say the two most probably will be -- well, i would say three, not just two, don, i would safe the three most witnesses would be john motarano, kevin weekes and definitely the nail in the coffin as i call him, steven "rifle man" phlegmy. >> he testified, again, this week. this time he talked about how he took his stepdaughter, debra, hussy, shopping before bringing her to bulger to be strangled. how damaging was his testimony? >> i'm go
by the across-the-board cuts known as sequestration by cutting domestic priorities in order to fund defense. that's unacceptable. he won't sign that. the across-the-board cuts are hurting our future. >> fair enough, but the process in washington over continuing to fund the government or raising the debt ceiling is necessarily a process that has to be engaged in. i guess what i'm asking is, is the president, unlike what he's done before signaling, he will go to the brink this time in order to stop cuts that he thinks will harm the economy? >> what the president did this week is he sent a very clear message that washington has to stop playing these brinksmanship games. it's not about who wins and who loses -- >> but this report, mr. secretary, indicates indeed the white house is setting itself on a position to go to the brink, in order to force republicans -- >> what we have said is congress needs to get its work done and needs to fund the kinds of things the american middle class need, and we need to get the debt limit extended in a way that doesn't create a crisis. that is what every congre
and not letting enough money be left over for national defense. so i think it's precisely those people that are making us weak in defense. i didn't start this one, and i don't plan on starting things by criticizing other republicans. but if they want to make me the target, they will get it back in spades. >> one makes me think of a high school student council election, gimme gimme gimme. republican king of new york issued a stark warning to the party on cnn's state of the union. here he is. >> when you have rand paul actually comparing snowden to martin luther king or henry david thoreau, this is madness. this is the anti-war left wing democrats of the 1960s that nominated george mcgovern and destroyed their party for almost 20 years. i don't want that happening to our party. >> love this fight. joining me now are two msnbc political analysts. neither strong republicans from what i can tell. david corn with mother jones and jonathan alter who comes from an old line democratic family. the a beautifully written book by john alter, "obama and his enemies." it is a fair fight because they'

they won't find another picture. >> reporter: there's no telling if the defense of her husband will help rezer is recollect his >> it took a whole lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to a place where i could forgive him. >> this morning "the new york times" and "daily news" are calling on weiner to withdraw. but weiner is insisting he's not dropping out of the race. >> after. this is what's so shocking, this is not new pictures that have surfaced from that trauma and drama. it's have after after he was publicly exposed, pardon the double entendre. and >> after he said, he was so ready for this damage control. he said, he was surprised this didn't come out sooner. but it's definitely a big surprise to see his wife, you know, she's right there, standing by him. >> right. >> we all saw her, we were surprised to even see her in the first place. and for her to come to the podium and speak out sent a very powerful message. >> interesting story. we'll certainly be watching. it will be interesting to see reaction to huma's speech as well and her comments. pamela brown, thanks for that.
's defense of her husband will help resurrect her political career. this morning the "new york times" and "new york daily news" are calling for weaner to withdraw. several other candidates say he's unfit for office. he's made it clear he plans to stay in the race. >> there's no question his competitors want him to drop out because he's beating all but one. we bring in anna navarro and mr. john avalon, both cnn contributors. beautiful to have you both, thank you for being here. i'll start with you, anna. here is the question. is this new and more or is this just more of the same? how do you think this plays politic politically? >> it's certainly new and more for voters in new york and people that watch it develop on tv. perception wise it's new and more and in politics what matters is perception. he has a recurrent problem. there's a huge difference between a one-time occurrence and recurrence going on after he had been caught. this tells you this guy has a problem. >> also you have another timing this looks politically expedient for somebody, mr. avalon, that it comes to the polls hi
class. the best defense against all of these forces, global competition, economic polarization, is the strength of the community. so we need to -- we need a new push to rebuild rundown neighborhoods. we need new partnerships. we need new partnerships for some of the hardest hit towns of america, to get them back on their feet. and because no one who works full time in america should have to live in poverty, i'm going to keep making the case that we need to raise the minimum wage because it's lower right now than it was when ronald reagan took office, it's time for the minimum wage to go up. [ cheers and applause ] we're not a people who allow chance of birth to decide life's biggest winners or losers. and after years in which we've seen how easy it can be for any of us to fall on hard times, folks in galesburg, folks in the quad cities, you know there are people who work hard. sometimes they get a bad break. plant leaves. somebody gets sick. somebody loses a home. we've seen it in our family and our friends and our neighbors. we've seen it happen, and that means we cannot turn
their death. now, the defense is going to have to try to show, look, there were just too many things that happened to hold him responsible for it. it's unfortunate, but he could not have foreseen this would happen and you shouldn't hold him accountable for this. that's a tough argument the defense has. the state has a pretty strong case because these women would not be dead if he hadn't been acting with gross negligence. >> it is tragic as you say all the way around. we'll follow it and see if it goes all the way through. monica lindstrom, thank you. >> thank you. >>> a graying and humbled o.j. simpson says he is sorry for the crimes that put him in prison. perhaps for the rest of his life. here he was. appeared by video feed before nevada's parole board in support of his plea that he be granted parole for burglary, robbery and kidnapping convictions. simpson is serving a 33-year sentence and would still have to serve at least four years on two other charges, eve fn the board rules in his favor. describing his clean prison record, simpson said he is a mentor to other inmates. >> i th
. just last month the judge agreed with the defense and ordered prosecutors if they had it to hand over specific evidence, documents relating to specific damage to national security. >> okay. chris, thank you. jake, here's my other big question because really if you read the papers this morning, the headlines, this could be precedent setting for information that is leaked that is given to investigative journalists. let me read you something. this is what we saw on wikileaks. they tweeted bradley manning's convictions relate to espionage. basic guide to honest reportage, manning has not been found guilty but he has been convicted of supplying information to the press. i mean, are there -- it goes both ways, i suppose, because he's acquitted of the heaviest offense that could have sent him to life in prison yet at the same time are journalists fully breathing that sigh of relief? >> well, as you say, the charge of aiding the enemy because of the idea, the concept that by providing information national security, confidential or secret information to the press the enemy can read it. the ide
. >> brian, the thing i think links what bill o'reilly said on his program last night and ray kelly's defense of his record is the idea that the best thing you can do for young african-american men, young african-americans in general is have a very intense law and order state that is very aggressive about policing and putting wrongdoers in jail because the victims of those wrongdoers are, themselves, african-american, and you have spent your adult career working in the criminal justice system. my question to you is, does that argument have purchase with you? >> no, it really doesn't. it's a distraction. trayvon martin wasn't killed because he didn't have two parents who loved him. he wasn't killed because of some social deficit or some cultural deficit. he was killed because of a presumption of guilt. all over this country, we're allowing black and brown children to be burdened with the presumption of guilt so they live their whole lives always being suspected. we had the president of the united states acknowledging his own dealings with this presumption of guilt. when anyone says that's not
in the president's big speech today. i heard an offense and i heard a defense. first the obama offense. he sees the economy not getting all that much better this year or later. and doesn't want to be blamed for it. what he wants is a battle, a national debate on the following question. did the people want to persist with the rate of growth we have now with higher than healthy jobless rate that is ebbing only slowly or push for infrastructure spending and other steps that will kick the economy into a higher gear? he wants this debate and he wants to be clearly positioned on one side of it. where the republicans refuse to support the agenda and he the president is seen promoting one. now to the obama defense. he also knows clearly the republican right ramrodded by cruz, paul, and lee are planning a showdown this fall. a manufacturing crisis that risks national default. he the president wants to position himself in the national standup that coming this fall as the leader that wants government to function. his opponents those are the people that want to shut government down. he's admitting the real
that because the defense itself did not pursue a stand your ground defense that it was irrelevant but it was absolutely not. it was part of the position of the judge as she gave instructions to this jury and clearly, this one juror felt very constrained by that. >> when the jury asked during deliberations on that saturday afternoon going into the evening, they asked for further explanation of misdemeanor, and then before -- she sent them back to start talking about it rather than giving them at that moment the further instruction, the clarification. then they never came back and they never got it. so there was something else going on there towards the last couple of hours. sybrina fulton of course trayvon martin's mother, had reacted to this. she said, it is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror b29, comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true, that george zimmerman literally got away with murder. this new information challenges our nation once again to do everything we can to make sure that this never happens to another child. >> sybrina fulton has
a case against the other shooters. the judge ruled they fired in self-defense and said, "the law would appear to allow a person to seek out an individual, provoke them into a confrontation, then shoot and kill him if he goes for his gun. it is very much like the wild west." one of the defense attorneys added, "you can't pick or choose who's going to benefit from a law." advocates of stand your ground tend to argue the law increases public safety, but when the courts are saying it creates a wild west, acknowledging that fact as they set killers free, it's hard to take the notion of public safety seriously. the verdict in the george zimmerman trial two weeks ago might be the most high-profile example of stand your ground's unintended consequences, but it is just one of many in the eight years since then-governor jeb bush signed stand your ground into law. 13 days ago in the wake of the zimmerman verdict, a group of protesters marched into the florida state capitol, to the reception area outside governor rick scott's office. the latest sheriff of florida's wild west and those prosecutors

for that report. joining us now is an expert witness from the manning defense on legal and media issues. he's a professor of entrepreneurial legal studies and a co-director of the berkman center for internet and society at harvard law school. thanks for being here. >> my pleasure. >> so you've written a lot about this. one of the things that concerns people here was not only the leaks and the nature of them, which we just heard the report from the pentagon, but a very new and very extreme precedent that the government was trying to set that would basically treat a leak to be the media, a leak to "the new york times" or nbc news as equivalent to not only wikileaks but to leaking or working with the enemy. tell us about that and your legal analysis of that and what today's verdict tells us. >> you're absolutely right, ari. that's exactly what was so dangerous about that issue. that's exactly what was so threatening about the article 104, aiding the enemy charge. essentially aiding the enemy includes not only helping but communicating with with the enemy. it includes not only communicating dir
scandals. i guess he stalking benghazi and the irs. for a white house that has found itself playing defense with things like the irs controversy and the national security leagues and obama care glitches, he has taken the offensive on this issue, and for good reason. we're talking about more than just an economic recovery for the white house. this is about power politics. this is obama declaring war on his enemies with specific terms. margie omero is a democratic pollster and strategist. here is what i think he is doing. he is laying down what looks to be the beginning of a discussion. republicans would love corporate tax cuts, a drop he is offering from down to 25 for manufacturing. he is also going to spend more money on highways, something republicans have always supported. republicans love spending money on highways. they come from rural areas. they love to spend that money. number three minimum wage. all republicans have to do, john, play mr. republican here and say we like that corporate tax cut. yes to that. on the infrastructure, we'll do it as long as you don't waste money on what i
's defense team will argue over what is an appropriate sentence. the judge will decide whether to let the charges run concurrently or string them out. she will have to come up with a specific number, the time and the years, that manning will serve. chris lawrence, cnn, four ft. meade, maryland. >>> about four minutes after the hour, they have been locked in a battle for months now with congress set to head home for recess, president obama said it's time to strike a deal. speaking in chattanooga, the president is he they can reach a grand bargain to fix the federal budget. >> here's the bottom line, i'm wering to work with republicans on reforming our corporate tax code, as long as we use the money from transferring from a simple tax system for creating middle class jobs. that's the deal. >> not so fast. house speaker john boehner rejected the proposal saying it will hurt small businesses and families. if it seems to you that this budget fight is more of the same in washington, you're not wrong. it doesn't seem like much is getting done there, does it? here's dana bash. >> reporter: le
